states. if we also take you back now and look, if president obama can win without florida absolutely possible, but again, the key for president obama is going to be ohio. you have florida and virginia to romney. he's at 248, obama 243. colorado leaning toward romney. now give obama new hampshire where he is favored, wisconsin where he is favored. give him iowa, just 263. then we are looking on election night to that all-important state of ohio, obama at 281. if you gave that to romney, look at that, 275-263. that's why it is so key. what is the one state that could keep us up at night? let's look out west. we've been giving it to mitt romney colorado. watch what happens if we give romney florida, virginia, ohio. he's at 266. president obama, what does he need? new hampshire, wisconsin, iowa, all places he's favored and look at the one place that's keeping us up at night, western state, mountain time zone, late closing time, 266, 263, nine electoral votes there could swing it one way or the other. let's look at one last scenario where we could have ourselves a tie. president obama out
yule tie with president obama leading by just two points. who is it that needs florida the most at this point? >> oh, if obama wins florida he's won this thing. he swept the table. look if he gets florida, it means he's probably got virginia. he's got pennsylvania. which i do think is a little hairy in pennsylvania. i still think it. didn't have the auto bailout aspect. it's got a lot of people in appalachia, very tough on obama, on the southwestern part of the state. i think that state is more in play than people think. i think democrats will squeak it by a couple points. but that one is much more precarious. that's why romney's going in there on sunday. and i don't think that's a head fake. i think he's going there thinking he can win it. so i think i would do it in this order. the democrats most likely to get ohio. and then i'd say virginia and then florida. so if they get florida they get all three. yeah it's good for them. >> and all the money that mitt romney's spending in pennsylvania, i mean, that shows that they want that, they need that state. >> i think you're right.
't it the latino and the african-american turnout in southern florida that's going to do it for president obama?>but e african-american turnout in southern florida that's going to do it for president obam>but is the african-american turnout in southern florida that's going to do it for president obama?afric southern florida that's going to do it for president obama? >> if he carries florida, it will be the latino turnout, it will be the african-american turnout, and it will be a reduced margin among seniors. >> okay. bob, the storm. the polls were taken before sandy hit. 78% approve of the president's handling of the storm. does this change things at all? i mean, here's the president doing his job, doing what he is supposed to do, and apparently doing such a good job, one of his archrivals in the political world, chris christie, is just showering the president with compliments. does this have an effect? >> well, you know, i give chris christie some praise, which is very rare for me. >> you think he's real? >> i think he's on the level about this. i think he cares about his state, and i think th
. the latest real clear politics poll average has mitt romney beating president obama in florida 49 to 46.6%. in palm beach county the same county that caused people to accidentally vote for pat buchanan. we have reports that election officials there actually screwed up again. i'm joined by chris lahan who was the spokesman for vice president gore's 2000 campaign. thanks for coming inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: so if they are messing up on the ballots, i'm sure it must be so embarrassing. >> yeah. in my view the election was effectively stolen, and now you are 12 years later in the exact same place having questions again. there are a large number of them who are jewish americans. some of them have been survivors of the holocaust, who tried to vote for al gore and then they couldn't have their votes put back to how they originally intended. so to be back in the same situation is a pretty good development. >> jennifer: absolutely. we were talking earlier in the show about the issue of legitimacy, and if the president ends up winning the el
but did not mention president obama's name at all. while romney was in florida, obama was in new jersey touring storm damage there and romney is now getting ready to kick off the final days of campaigning. while the election is a big deal for the future of our country, no doubt about it, we have certainly seen the campaigning mode for a whole lot of other issues, and it's probably fair to say that some of you are ready for the election to be over. if you're one of those people you're not alone. we want to show you what happened to a girl, 4 years old, when she heard the election coverage on the radio. >> just because i'm tired -- i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? >> oh, it will be over soon, abby. okay? the election will be over soon. okay? >> okay. i think a lot of people feel that way. that is abby evans. she lives in colorado and she was listening to npr with her mother on the way to the grocery store. the video went viral. it turns out the 4-year-old has big plans for her future and you can probably guess it has nothing to do with politics. >> w
in the past. our poll even has the president up two in florida. so the obama team certainly optimistic and down the stretch they come to keep that sports metaphor going. >> love it. thank you. >> as for the challenger mitt romney needs to rally his troops and out gun the president's skilled operation. peter zand certificate on a plane right now with the romney campaign. he called this report for us right before takeoff. >> reporter: two stops down, three more to go today as part of the 72 hour final sprint for mitt romney here in dubuque, iowa there's been a unique opportunity on the campaign plane as we prepare to board for colorado. several of the governor's top advisers are traveling with the campaign today. of course predictions about what will happen on tuesday. there's a sense they are soaking in these final hours of a campaign that many of them have been working on during the course of the last five years. the governor here again offering bipartisan themes. he has tried to draw attention to the president's comments from yesterday in ohio we said not to boo but encouraged voters
the presidency without winning. ohio will be the decisive state. if president obama wins florida, it moves the -- >> i could see florida being -- >> what i heard democrats talk about if they can hold ohio, hold wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, hold nevada, they could lose all other swing states, lose the congressional district in maine and come out with exactly 270 electoral votes. gwen: you add it up that way, john? >> that sounds very powerful. what i am struck by is there hasn't been any mystery about this. if you go further than a year ago, president obama's team was very straightforward. they expected it was going to be mitt romney. they were going to make him very unacceptable. the wealthy and out of touch background. they did that. they had a micro targeted micromessage strategy. they said what they were going to do. and stuck to that strategy seems to be with remarkable discipline. if it works, they look really, really smart. the difference between being really smart and really dumb -- [laughter] >> what's remarkable is that they broadcast that, right? >> and the romney campaign
that's going to do it for president obama? >> if he carries florida, it will be the latino turnout, it will be the african-american turnout, and it will be a reduced margin among seniors. >> okay. bob, the storm. the polls were taken before sandy hit, 78% approve of the president's handling of the storm. does this change things at all? i mean, here's the president, doing his job. doing what he is supposed to do. and apparently, doing such a good job, one of his archrivals in the political world, chris christie, is just showering the president with compliments. does this have an effect? >> you know, i give chris christie some praise -- >> you think he's real? >> i think he's on the level about this. i think he cares about his state, and i think the president responded and did everything that christie asked. look, you live here in new york and you go through this, and the first thing you think about is all these folks, not the political impact and what's happening to them, but beyond that, i think you will see, early voting will slow down in some parts of virginia. you may have some
. >>> moments ago president obama canceled a campaign appearance in florida in order to get back to the white house sooner to monitor the storm. nbc's tracie potts has the latest for us from washington. tracie, what's going on? >> reporter: veronica, as you can see things are changing literally by the hour. the president is going to be here and not in florida this morning. so far here we just have light rain. as you can see these campaigns are taking no chances. >> reporter: governor romney will join ryan's bus tour in ohio. president obama canceled events in virginia and colorado. he'll do one last rally in florida today before heading back to washington. on sunday the president met with fema, the federal emergency management agency overseeing the government's plans to help states and cities. >> anything they need, we will be there. we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. >> reporter: in florida the president told campaign workers turnout is the key. >> whoever is able to get their voters out, they're the one whose are going to win florida
appearances. obama returned to the white house after calling off a campaign stop in the u.s. state of florida just three hours before it was to start. earlier he san selled events in virginia and ohio. obama said he's not worried that the hurricane will affect the election next tuesday. former president bill clinton was in orlando, florida to rally support. clinton said obama is the best choice for president. romney cancelled vents in on monday. he issued a statement calling on people to come together across the country and focus on giving support to those who need it. the two states are not in sandy's path but observers say romney did not want to appear to be koe kusing on the campaign in the midst of a potential national disaster. >>> u.n. and arab league envoy says the truce he brokered in syria for a holiday period has collapsed. syria's government and opposition forces agreed to stop all attacks which started last friday. the fighting has continued leaving many people dead. the he said he's deeply disappointed but will not be deterred. >> it will not discourage us. the people of syria de
? >> if it were held today, mitt romney would win florida. >> president obama is going to lose it and he won in '08. why do you think he is going to lose it? >> he won the vote from women and independents pretty handily in 2008 and he is neck and neck with women and independents are leaning pretty strong towards mitt romney. i think that's because, victor, people wanted hope and change in 2008. it's much different to run on a record than it is to run on promises. right now we know one-third of the american labor pool is out of work. the net worth of american families plummeted 40% and americans are watching the president, we feel mislead us, on very important issues such as benghazi. >> you say that americans want the hope and change. how can both republicans or people who are voting for mitt romney if they're independents say that things have changed too much. they "want their country back." but they still didn't get change. how can you have the argument both ways? >> that's easy, victor, that's easy. republicans never wanted president obama's hope and change. democrats and independents did
obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday before the election when many african-americans usually plan to car pool after church to go vote. the governor said no. florida's governor said, "early voting will end on saturday night, but i want everybo
notice that president obama is only going down to florida one time, i believe. >> right. >> so, you know, that's striking. you know, the polling has, i think, generally been slightly pro-romney. so, you know, i don't get the sense that they really think that florida is the best place to be spending their time. they might be writing it off. you know, i think it's really interesting to see wisconsin be such a frequent destination. i believe that romney had not gone to wisconsin for a couple, few months until he went last week or a few days ago. he's going back again. the emphasis on wisconsin right now is interesting. and i think it speaks to the idea that although romney is definitely not giving up on ohio by any means, you know, you do get a sense that they are trying to work these contingency plans. how can we do this without ohio? you know, can we get wisconsin and iowa, you know, you guys have been talking about the ad spending they're doing in pennsylvania and michigan, can they pick off these other states? honestly, i think at the end of the day, it comes down to ohio. and obama has

states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican policies had created an outflow of american jobs and caused the economic downturn. >> we can't afford to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess. we have got to go forward with the approximately see that are getting us out of the mess and that's why i am running for a second term. that's why i need your help. >> romney is targeting voters in swing states. people believe ohio will be crucial. >> this is an electtionion aboug things. the american people can't afford four more years. change that will bring and opportunity. >> a new opinion poll suggests romney has topped 50% on support of likely voters. the first time he hit that mark. abc news and "washington post" have made 1,400 likely voters from sunday to wednesday. 50% of respondents said they would vote for romney. 47% for obama. the pollsters
romney is leading president obama in florida. when you break it down in central florida where the president needs a boost, he trails there along the i-4 corridor by six points according to a "tampa bay times" pole. miami dade county has him up 52% to 43%. president obama is up. in old dominion the latest washington post poll has president obama hanging on to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight point spread in virginia. in the buckeye state, a new ohio news poll has it dead even 49-49. any advantage the president had, five points, is now gone. on the trail yesterday mitt romney forced to change course his self because of the storm. after canceling three rallies in virginia, he teemed up with his running mate in ohio telling supporters only a ryan/romney could bridge the divide. >> we have to reach across the aisle. we have to find good democrats. democrats love america too. we have to reach across the aisle, find ways to bring in people from the other party, work together, collaborate, meet regularly and fight for the american people and we will. >> with democrats ham
. president obama left florida to head straight to washington to deal with the storm. >> we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process to a wide swamp of the country, and millions of people are going to be affected. >> there are families in harm's way that will be hurt either in their possessions or perhaps in something more severe. >> severe indeed. already we are hearing reports that in the tri-state area, five people have fallen victim to this storm. reporting live from manhattan, karen colleed. now back to you. >>> republican presidential nominee mitt romney has also cancelled campaign events due to the storm. scratched an appearance in wisconsin tonight. paul ryan cancelled rallies in florida and both republicans cleared their campaign schedules tomorrow. >>> and superstorm sandy is turning lives upside down. giving you a look at the storm right now. it came ashore in new jersey earlier today, wind gusts 80 to 85 miles per hour. those winds are still gusting to 80 miles per hourment sandy is a post-trorm. it has merged with a winter storm and now is not only bringin
was volunteering for obama in florida he said it's unbelievable he says very little activity on the romney side. even media are all reporting -- >> let me get -- i think that is clearly true. but let me give a little word of caution on that. look who republicans are. they are essentially middle and upper middle class white people who come out to the polls. look who our base is. typically people who need government most have worst turn out records by virtue of income and education. no matter what the election if they want to win. >> i want to consider -- they talk in terms -- we talked about this before the taping but they talk in terms of the ground game with democrats of this point, more offices, more personnel just having much -- >> like the -- >> republicans are spending their money on tv ads and democrats are spending on the ground game which democrats have decided this election is more important. i wonder if the republicans need as big a ground game because they have the churches. they have the pastors at the mega churches all over this country telling their parishioners, their members to
america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think people are obviously talking about it to a certain extent. it's not in the front of their minds. what it does politically, conventional campaigning has ceased. it takes the two candidates off the media. i
. and vice president biden was supposed to be in virginia beach today but had to call it off. president obama campaigns in florida tomorrow. ncht >>> ohio will be the focus over the next ten days and the latest cnn/orc poll shows why. obama is leading 50% to 46% basically unchanged since earlier this month and well within the poll's sampling error. we're going to spend a lot of time this hour hearing from the first lady, michelle obama, and mitt romney's wife, ann romney. two fascinating women and strong advocates for their successful and ambitious husbands. at the bottom of the hour we'll bring you a special of "the journey of ann romney." she tells our own gloria borger that some people have the wrong impression of her husband. >> there are a lot of charges about your husband. one of them is that he's somebody who has no core. that he's been on both sides of a lot of issues. >> and that's just to me like the most false charge there is. because i know his core. >> what is his core? >> honesty, integrity, decency, intelligence, conviction to doing the right thing. for me i've seen that in eve
, in florida so i think it hurts president obama in the sense that it does interrupt that process. they've got a huge operation to get people out early voting in key states. on the other hand, i do think if you look at the polling there is -- there is a narrow lead for obama in a lot of these key swing states. and it seems like it would have the effect of freezing the race at least for a period of time as people just focus on other stuff, you know. focus on -- getting their power back or recovering from damage or whatever else. certainly fills up a lot of the news. so i think it kind of cuts both ways but if you buy into the idea that really mitt romney is the one who needs to make something happen here in the last week, i don't think this is what he really wants to see. >> bill: i would add one other factor which is, in the meantime, mitt romney is twiddling his thumbs and president obama is on national television and doing his job. and he's not just talking about it on television. he's actually doing his job. and going to
seriously? >> no, i don't take those three polls seriously. here is why. in florida, they have obama ahead by 1 point. they have seven points more democrats than republicans. even in 2008 there were only 3 points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly, when you poll, you take a political affiliation of people you call. as mr. rove just told us on his little board, his little white board he takes everywhere they poll mor
